Brize Norton church

Though Brize Norton dates back to the middle ages, it is best known today for its RAF station, nerve centre of the RAF’s transport capabilities. Until 1937 the village was a self-sufficient agricultural community linked with Bampton and the parish church, St Britius, is Norman though heavily restored in the Victorian era.
